Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Don't these look good?  Well, mine look like this but this is a generic picture since I forgot to take one!  I haven't posted recipes lately because every one I tried lately has been bad!! YUCK!! So, here's a "classic" for you!

1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs.  In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir into batter.  Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets.  Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.  Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.  Do not over bake.

This recipe make a TON of cookies!!  Also, I did not refrigerate mine for an hour (I actually didn't even know the recipe said that until I typed this up!) 

Enjoy :-)
